15 July 2022 fishing report 🎣


15 July 2022

Dad joke:

I would love to get paid to sleep.

It would be a dream job.


G’day everyone after a rough start at the beginning of the week with some strong winds and rain I took the same strategy as I have all year and found the areas where the dirty water met the clear water. 

The fog on the river in the mornings added to the mystery and beauty of the Tweed

This clash of currents is around the middle reaches of the river and as expected the fish were there and lucky for myself and my clients the area also provided some protection from the wind. 

The fish caught were a heap of flatties with some very good quality specimens in the mix  as well as some tailor and those beautiful little school jew that I have been catching for months now and are a wonderful sign for the future of the river,

Some rain, some wind, some cold this week made it tricky. The Southern end of the broadwater which usually provides lots of fun this time of year, has been quiet and lacking baitfish.

Winter mix in the Gold Coast broadwater

I’m sure as the water clears more the white bait and yakka will move in followed by tailor, mackerel, and other fish. I did have some good catches of squid near Seaworld before a school of Giant Trevally seemed to spook them.

The rest of the week in the lead up to full moon we searched North of the seaway for a mixed catch of arrow squid, flounder, flathead, winter whiting.

I also fished at Jumpinpin one day and we caught flathead on Samaki vibes, Knockin Tail plastics, and Gobbler plastics with the more transparent colour lures working best.

This coming week once the wind drops should see bigger catches of squid, and bigger numbers and size of tailor and flathead near the seaway entrance.
